19/12/2017 - Gedling Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) ref: 642    Recommendations Approved

The Gedling Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) outlines the measures that Gedling Borough Council propose to put in place in order to mitigate the effects of cold weather on rough sleepers. It is a DCLG requirement for all local Authorities to have a specific plan to address rough sleeping during periods of exceptionally severe weather.
The trigger for the Government’s SWEP to be activated is when the Met Office forecasts three nights, or more, of weather at a minimum temperature of zero degrees Centigrade or below.
It is proposed, however, that, in Gedling, the trigger will be when the temperature falls to zero degrees centigrade or below on any given night or when the area is affected by exceptionally severe weather conditions such as snow, high winds, wind chill or flooding. Accommodation will be provided for as long as the severe weather occurs.
The purpose of this report is to seek approval to implement the Gedling SWEP to enable the Council to respond to the additional hardships faced by rough sleepers during the winter, and to incorporate the guidance issued by the DCLG.
The Gedling Severe Weather Emergency Protocol is proposed to be in place each year from the 1st December of any year to the 31st March of the following year. The SWEP will remain in place for each financial year.

18/12/2017 - Demolition of 10 Burton Road, Carlton Square ref: 636    Recommendations Approved

Improving Carlton Square shopping centre is a priority in the Gedling Plan. To facilitate comprehensive development, Rose Cottage (see attached plan), a dilapidated building within the main parking area was acquired by the Council in 2016.
Whilst options to bring forward a workable scheme for Carlton Square are under discussion with Waypoint (the owners of the shopping centre), the condition of the derelict cottage continues to deteriorate. Although the cottage is boarded and fenced, it has been subject to numerous incidents of vandalism and forced entry.
To prevent further incidents of vandalism and anti-social behaviour at the cottage, and to ensure any impacts arising from the current condition of the cottage on neighbouring properties is minimised, it is proposed to demolish the cottage.
The Service Manager for Property will appoint specialist contractors to undertake demolition following disconnection of services to the property. Electricity supply has already been removed and Severn Trent has confirmed that water services will be disconnected on 18 January 2018.
The works will include removal of any materials containing asbestos, demolition, removal of rubble, levelling the site and securing with tamper proof fencing until the plans for the wider modernisation planned for Carlton Square are ready to progress.
The cost of the work is anticipated to be below £10,000 and can be contained within the Carlton Square capital budget of £100,000.
An indicative timetable for completion of key tasks is set out in appendix 1.
